22 mayo, 2021

Not all users want or need phones for which they have to make a large investment. The advancement of the mobile sector has meant that, for quite some time, there has been more than good proposals in the middle bands both power and price. And this is where we focus this compilation that we present to you.

We have compiled the best phones that we can find in the price range located between 200 and 400 euros. A slightly higher investment than the average, which is around 270 euros, but enough to find powerful bets with good returns and cameras. Not only new mobile phones, we will also go back a bit in 2018, where there are still phones to highlight.

OPPO Reno2 Z

Reno2 Z

The Reno2 line landed on the international market in 2019 and as part of its middle range the OPPO Reno2 Z arrived with a Helio P90 at the controls and with more than interesting features. Such as having four cameras located on the back, one of the cameras being a 3D TOF for depth readings and the other a monochrome sensor to add more variety to fairly repetitive multi-camera systems.

The phone passed by our analysis table and left us good feelings, especially thanks to the fast charge or the quality of your screen. Currently we can find the model on Amazon at a price that usually moves around 310 euros. We leave you the links below.

Huawei Mate 20 Lite

Bordering the lower price limit that we have set for this compilation we find one of Huawei’s star mobiles of last year. The Huawei Mate 20 Lite that we analyze here, and that is still a device to bet on. Especially now that the conflict with the United States seems to have come to a complete end.

The Mate 20 Lite is a phone with 6.3 inches of screen with notch, the wide version unfortunately, and that has a good average mark in almost all its lines. Including of course the photographic note and that of their autonomy. A device to take into account and that we can find almost 300 euros depending on the store we go to.

Huawei P Smart 2019

Huawei P Smart 2019

And without leaving the Huawei catalog, we arrived at your P Smart line. A line that claims to be supportive since part of its sales are destined to charitable works, and that in its 2019 version came into our lives converted into a 6.2-inch phone very balanced in all its lines, and again with autonomy. to consider.

Huawei has managed to build a comfortable phone in hand, with good general performance and with small details that are appreciated, such as the plastic body to add resistance, or as the brand of the house fingerprint reader. Again, a little over the 200 euro border marked for compilation. A recommended mobile.

Xiaomi Mi 9 SE

We enter the Xiaomi catalog to find the first squire of the Xiaomi Mi 9 launched this year. The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE, which stood at a convenient second echelon of the market and from its own catalog, but which has an internal configuration that is both economical and competitive for what the market offers at the moment.

Among its advantages, the comfort of a phone that stands at six inches but with a considerable reduction in frames, reminding us of 5-inch mobiles of not so long ago. And of course, the fact that this Snapdragon 712 is very well optimized and integrated with the system, which makes it perform better than what would be expected of it on paper. One of the phones to consider in this 2019.

Xiaomi Mi 9T

The last to arrive in the Chinese manufacturer’s catalog, the famous phone with the camera located on the upper frame, the first in Xiaomi’s repertoire. In India it is marketed as Redmi K20 but here it has arrived as Xiaomi Mi 9T and it becomes, in its own right, one of the most interesting phones of today. Among other things because it perfectly fulfills one of Xiaomi’s maxims: the value for money.

Thus, for just over 300 euros we can get a Xiaomi Mi 9T that is located in the ‘gaming’ range of the market with its Snapdragon 730, and that has 4,000 mAh of battery with fast charge that they offer superlative autonomy. Possibly the best of the phone, counting on its design. If your budget is 300 euros, with a little more it can be yours.

Nokia 8.1

Nokia 8.1

Here we bring you a phone that came out of the HMD and Nokia factories and that has something that we had not yet seen in this compilation: Android One. A completely pure operating system, the closest thing to the old Google Nexus, now Pixel. And also, surrounded by competent equipment that makes it competitive.

The Nokia 8.1 arrives with the Snapdragon 710 at the front and with 4GB of RAM that are more than enough in this range of the market. 3,500 mAh battery, slightly more than average and with Quick Charge 4+ fast charge, in addition to a camera crew, two behind and one in front, with Carl Zeiss lenses. Without a doubt, a model that should not go unnoticed and that we find above 300 euros.

Motorola One Vision

More Android One to this compilation, now direct from Lenovo factories and sold under its international brand, Motorola. A phone that brings the Moto One line to its second generation and you saw it with a perforated screen that we had not seen before in its catalog, although we did in the market.

In addition, this Moto One Vision has the peculiarity of carrying the Exynos 9609, manufactured by Samsung, as the general captain of the phone’s operations. Not missing the extra-long CinemaVision screen or its rear camera equipment, which features a 48 megapixel main sensor.

Samsung Galaxy M30

Galaxy M30

Samsung has been undergoing renovations in its catalog for some time and proof of this is the birth of your new Galaxy M family, who arrives from India with several telephones already behind him. Like this Galaxy M30 with a highway name and that becomes a very competitive phone in its price range, in addition to having an acceptable design and power to match.

As its maximum appeal, a 5,000 mAh internal battery with 15W fast charge, and we cannot leave out its triple rear camera. With three 13, 5 and 5 megapixel sensors to offer optical zoom and super wide angle. An interesting Samsung phone that we have circulating in Spain, and that can be ours for just under 300 euros.

Samsung Galaxy A50

Galaxy A50

It can be said today, without a doubt, that the Samsung Galaxy A50 has been one of the sensations of the year in the Korean catalog. A very balanced and at the same time powerful phone that has managed to combine its technical characteristics well with a competitive price. From their 6.4 inch Super AMOLED up to 4,000 mAh with fast charging and a more than decent autonomy.

The phone featured a robust design that worked to its advantage from the start, and with a complete and versatile camera equipment that, however, has a somewhat aggressive processing for the average that is usually observed in the market. All in all, a very good option that we can find in stores for about 250 euros, depending on where we go.

Samsung Galaxy A70

Galaxy A70

The Samsung midline still reserved another pleasant surprise for us in 2019, and it was the Samsung Galaxy A70. A phone of considerable dimensions with its 6.7 inch screen but that offered not only more than enough power to do everything we wanted, but also a more than remarkable autonomy. 4,500 mAh and a fast charge of 25W gave a good account of it.

The phone landed with a Snapdragon 675 running at 2GHz, with a triple camera system with 32 megapixels at the head and with a striking price for the phone line we are talking about. The Galaxy A70 can be found around 330 euros without much difficulty.

Honor Play

We do not want to leave Honor out of this compilation, even if it shares a large part of its DNA with Huawei, which in the end is also its mother brand. And that’s why here we bring you the Honor Play, one of the first phones named ‘gaming’ that we saw coming to the market, and that now enjoys a quite estimable price for what it is capable of offering.

With its 6.3 inches, the Play offers a double rear camera, a generous battery close to 4,000 mAh and with fast charging, and with the high-end Kirin 970 as a processor. This guarantees a fast execution of artificial intelligence code, valid for the system and games, but also for the cameras. Without a doubt, one of the “pearls” of this compilation as we found it for just under 300 euros.
